Oh boy, another social net

Variety has decided it wants in on the social network frenzy, so it has created “The Biz.” Puh-LEEZE.

You know, here’s the deal. Variety may provide a unique way for people in — I hate myself for this — “the biz” to connect, but I doubt it. We already have social sites aplenty, and I don’t know about you, but I’m getting sick of joining walled gardens.

The inevitable killer social app will be the one that allows me to put all of my connections in one place. There are many folks trying to do this, but they all fall short, because MySpace and Facebook don’t want to have anything to do with them.

But until there is such an animal, I’m just not going to join. Fair enough?


  1. brings to mind the old 3 stooges line-

    you give me $20, i give you “The Biz“ness.

    the asking price does seem a tad steep.
